Review Buchanan Township
There are many highways that go right through Fairfield so in a way its quite easy to get around but the closest airport with international flights is in Cedar rapids which is about an hour and a half away. Parking is readily available all over town, and we have plenty of walking trails that people can use. Some parts of town do not have side walks but those aren't areas you would necessarily be walking in anyway. There is definitely no congestion since it is a small town.
I would never choose to work in this town. Most of the available jobs involve serving in the restaurant business or supermarket chains which I am definitely not interested in being apart of. However, there are some factories nearby that have decent wages so if you are lucky enough to get hired there without a college degree then it isn't so bad. I prefer working in Iowa City.
There is some variety in town due to all of the families that are apart of the Maharishi community. They started their own organic, specialty store that has a lot of interesting foods in it, and there are several excellent restaurants to choose from. I personally really enjoy the Pad Thai from the Noodle House.
